Ashtabula Main Hall Corridor B100 Renovation KSU-19L202
The project involves the renovation of corridor B100 in Ashtabula Main Hall. The scope of work includes replacement of the mosaic floor, removal of vinyl wall covering, replacement of windows on two floors, replacement of the ceiling and lighting, and installation of a sprinkler system. Payto Architects, Inc. designed this project. This General Contracting project is being managed via OAKS-CI.

McGilvrey Hall Elevator Addition KSU-19S025
At 78 years old, McGilvrey Hall's existing elevator is very small, does not accommodate emergency rescue equipment, is not fully ADA accessible, does not access all occupied floors of the building, cannot be tied-in to the planned fire alarm system replacement, and finding parts to keep it in operating condition is very difficult. It is not likely to remain in usable condition much longer and will be decommissioned when the new elevator is put into operation. This project will provide an accessible entrance and elevator for McGilvrey Hall between the two existing building wings and infill the existing loading dock area. Payto Architects, Inc. designed this project. This Capitally-funded, General Contracting project is being managed via OAKS-CI.

Satterfield Hall HVAC Replacement KSU-19S009
The existing HVAC system in Satterfield Hall can no longer maintain heating and cooling conditions nor humidity levels and it is very noisy. The first phase of this project will involve installation of a new central HVAC unit, piping and ductwork with VAV boxes located above the ceilings in each classroom on the first floor. The second phase of this project will continue installation of the new system on the second and third floors of the building. Dynamix Engineering, Ltd. designed this multiple-phased project. This Capitally-funded, General Contracting project is being managed via OAKS-CI.

Stark Main Hall New Entry and Elevator KSU-18S604
Stark Campus' existing Main Hall elevator is original to the building and the elevator does not serve all the floors within the building, nor is it the proper size for ADA or emergency responder usage. This project will require the construction of a new entry and elevator shaft on the South facade of Main Hall and installation of a new, ADA-compliant, 3,500 lb. passenger elevator to connect all five floors of the building. Hasenstab Architects, Inc. designed this project. This Capitally-funded, General Contracting project is being managed via OAKS-CI.

Trumbull Science and Technology Building Nursing Department Relocation and Renovation KSU-19L702
The Nursing program is currently located within the Trumbull Main Classroom Building near the Library Theater area. The existing area no longer serves the program properly and is in need of renovation. There are areas within the Science and Technology Building that are currently vacant and are appropriate in size for the full Nursing program to be consolidated into a single area. This project will renovate and develop areas within the Science and Technology Building for use by the Nursing program. SoL Harris/Day Architecture, Inc. designed this project. This General Contracting project is being managed via OAKS-CI.
